Fire District Residents, as you are aware, we are experiencing record setting levels of Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay. As a result, your district firefighters have been responding to numerous water related problems. For those along the lake and bay shores as well as those that are prone to flooding, please remember these tips:

• Heed official instructions. Monitor potential flood
hazards on NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards or
on the Internet at NOAAwatch.gov/floods.php.
• Don’t walk through a flooded area. Just 6 inches
of moving water can knock you off your feet.
• Don’t drive through a flooded area. A car can be
carried away by just 2 feet of water.
• Keep away from downed power lines and any
other electrical wires.
• Animals that lost their homes during a flood
may seek shelter in your home and aggressively
defend themselves.

If you have water in your basement, you can call 911 and a fire district representative will respond and evaluate the situation. The decision on pumping will be based on a number of factors and ultimately may not be able to be done. The fire department may also loan you a sump pump kit, however this is for short term use and is designed to help with the situation, not totally replace your own pump. If there is any doubt, please call 911.

The water is expected to continue to rise for the foreseeable future. Please stay tuned to the news and check the Monroe County website regularly for important information. Lake Ontario Flood Assistance Hotline - 866-244-3839
